Sky Bet Championship
St Andrews
Saturday, September 12th, 3pm

Bristol City face unbeaten Birmingham City this Saturday at St Andrews following the international break.

All the key information on tomorrow's opponents can be found below.

BIRMINGHAM CITY
The Blues have started the season in good form and remain unbeaten after four games with two wins and two draws. They managed to keep prized asset Demarai Gray in the summer and have assembled a squad capable of pushing for the play-off places.

MANAGER
Gary Rowett - Former Blues defender appointed the club’s manager in 2014 after a seven-year association with Burton Albion as a player and manager. The 41-year-old missed out on promotion from Sky Bet League Two with the Brewers losing in the play-offs in consecutive seasons. He was offered the Blackpool job a month before he took over at St. Andrew's.

STAR MAN
Demarai Gray - A product of the Blues academy and an England Under-20 international. The young winger has been the subject of interest from Premier League clubs after impressing since making debut at 17. Gray has made 57 appearances for Birmingham scoring seven goals.

OFFICIALS
Mark Brown is appointed as the man in the middle. He will be assisted by Robert Merchant and Andrew Laver. The fourth official will be Christopher Sarginson.

TICKETS
The match is all-ticket for away supporters. There will be 2,600 City fans at St. Andrew's.

LAST TIME OUT
Bristol City 0-1 Birmingham City - A goal from Wade Elliott earned the Blues all three points at Ashton Gate, consigning City to Sky Bet League One football in the process.

LAST SEASON
Sky Bet Championship: 10th
FA Cup: Fourth round (lost to West Bromwich Albion)
Capital One Cup: Second round (lost to Sunderland)

DID YOU KNOW?
The club had three names prior to becoming Birmingham City in 1944 (Small Heath Alliance 1875-1888, Small Heath 1888-1905, Birmingham 1905-1944).
